An archaeological dig in
Cornwall has gone very wrong, very quickly. And Maria Kilbride has her
hands full already, as the effects of the Injection begin to dig in. So
Brigid Roth, her old comrade from the CCCU, gets hired to go to a stone
circle in the middle of a moor, under a granite tor, to find out why a
ritual murder might have torn a hole in the world. What is the Cold
The first two volumes of this series quickly established themselves as being amongst my favourite books. Taking it's inspiration from various Wyrd Britain faves such as Quatermass, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, Thomas Carnacki and Doctor Who it certainly rings all our bells.
As ever Warren has crafted a witty, immersive and downright exciting tale this time melding modern and ancient technologies in the manner of the best Nigel Kneale scripts. There's a little bit of 'The Stone Tape' in there along with some 'Quatermass Conclusion' and a tiny smattering of Kneale's short story 'Minuke'.
As I said earlier, by the end of book 1 this was already a favourite and the two subsequent volumes have confirmed and strengthened this opinion and I'm only sorry that with only two books left in the series we are now past the halfway mark.
